Victaulic Co of America

Victaulic is the originator and world’s leading producer of grooved mechanical pipe joining and flow control solutions. Patented in 1919, the “Victory Joint” allows pipes to be coupled or joined without threading, welding, or flanging. In 1925, Victaulic Company of America was founded with a name derived from victory and hydraulic. Today, Victaulic operates in over 120 countries worldwide, and has a strong presence in key markets such as North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. 

Victaulic builds technologies and provides engineering services that address complex piping challenges faced by engineers, site owners, contractors, and distributors. They are vertically integrated with engineering, research, product development, and manufacturing, all controlled from within, ensuring quality throughout all global manufacturing facilities.

Victaulic’s piping products are designed to connect pipes of different materials and sizes and are used in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, fire protection, and water distribution applications. Here are some of the main categories and product lines:

  • Couplings: Standard couplings, flexible couplings, rigid couplings, flange adapters, transition couplings, and expansion joints
  • Fittings: Elbows, tees, crosses, wyes, reducers, caps, and adapters
  • Valves: Ball valves, butterfly valves, check valves, control valves, pressure-reducing valves, and knife gate valves
  • Accessories: Gaskets, bolts and nuts, sprinklers, strainers, pipe preparation tools, and marking tools

Victaulic has a strong focus on innovation and has developed several patented technologies and products that have helped to revolutionize the industry. These include the first grooved mechanical coupling for piping systems, which has become a standard in the industry, and more recent innovations, such as the Vic-Press system for joining stainless steel pipe and the FireLock NXT series of couplings for fire protection systems.
